for eliminating tax deductions. in a fox business exclusive, romney running mate paul ryan says that tax plan would mean a president romney would pay more in taxes. >> here's how it works, higher income people can use lots of tax shelters to shelter some of their income from taxation. more of their income is subject to taxation, that allows to us lower tax rates for everybody. rich: some families and businesses will pay more because there would be fewer deductions. others would pay less with lower tax rates. in theory it is all supposed to balance out. among the more popular tax deductions and exemptions for the cost of workers health plans interest on home mortgages, retirement plans, and giving to charity, these are the more popular, and there are many more, and the romney campaign will not say which ones. back to you. dagen: if some people are going to pay more taxes, you are going to raise the taxes on those people? rich: you are not going to raise their tax rates but raise their effective tax rates. if you have a a big generous tax deduction that goes away to pay this thing, you personal

because of paul ryan. you are against the basic problem that if paul ryan had voted for the simpson-bowles proposal and if we had gotten through congress with president obama's support, obama would get the credit and he would be waltzing to a piece of cake reelection. i do think -- and there is the third problem. peter orszag, the head of the budget bureau wrote an op-ed in the new york times saying my own instincts, problem with the united states is too much democracy. we can't get anything done. if we actually try to do it through elections and procedures what we need are ever more expert commissions that will make decisions for us. maybe that is true but it should be recognized that if that is the solution to our problem, we should stop traveling to other countries around the world that what they need is more democracy because in fact we would have come to the conclusion that democracy doesn't really work. >> i really welcome this. my understanding is the newspapers and the constitution, grew out of a lot of study of constitutions across country and so forth so that grew out of a

's challenging. one thing to watch also is in the interview show with paul ryan, paul ryan was asked how does your budget plan add up? he says i'm not really sure i have time to explain that right now. you better believe they will press romney about it on wednesday. that's the kind of thing they have to avoid. >> karen, as alice brought up, foreign policy. that being a hot topic issue in the headlines and also for very good reason. americans want to know what president obama's foreign policy is going for. because of situations that seem to be forever in the lexicon of our conversation. certainly in afghanistan with what we've seen happening there. so karen, with that being said, can the president sharpen what he wants to say knowing that's going to be a vulnerable spot for him. mitt romney wants to prove that americans go through strength. and president obama may not have that philosophy. >> peace through strength is a nice slogan, but the president has unfortunately the burden of knowing the facts on the ground and knowing what is possible and what is not possible. foreign policy is complica
to how he will fix the economy. use of paul ryan over the weekend talking about -- you saw paul ryan over the weekend talking about how he does not have time to explain the numbers in his budget. people want that explanation and are creeping back from the governor. guest: given the constraints of the debate format, they will not give chapter and verse from the town and its parent -- from the candidates. this is more important for mitt romney. he benefits as a challenger from standing on the same stage as the incumbent president of the united states, but there is a greater burden to convince the wavering voters, the 12 or 14 people that i've not made up their minds in this election. host: post-debate spin, howard kurtz, how important is that, and how social media plays a more important role? guest: the post-debate spin, i think it is critical, as people watched the debate, but they can make up their own mind, but that is an hour and half. what you get for the next several days or a week are the clips that are replayed, the chair by the commentators. you mentioned the al gore eye- rolling t

that mitt romney deserves a chance with met right bridge -- with paul ryan. they have a solid plan to turn this country around, to save social security, not cutting it, like all the old people are being indoctrinated with. one party is pro-life. one party is pro-choice. if we want four more years of these excuses of blaming bush, of blaming anything you can but still keeping people stagnant without rewarding small businesses -- small businesses create 74% of the jobs in this country. obama wants to tax them. does that make sense to anyone? and we are paying $800 million on interest alone? we cannot sustain this. we need a change. especially you catholics, if you are voting for mr. obama, you may as well be complicity in the abortions taking place, because there are far too many and we need to solve these social and financial issues with a strong person who will defend our country, not make excuses that it is our fault for all of the things going on in the world. host: we will do this for about 25 more minutes, getting your thoughts. on campaign policy, governor romney and president obama s

romney's proposed with paul ryan an ambitious reformation of the program that would go to voucher, but he hasn't said what the level of the voucher would be or the growth rate in the voucher. if you don't specify that, you can't specify what your savings will be or the impact on consumers. and finally president obama last year in the grand bargain talks with house speaker boehner talked about more ambitious proposals than medicare than he's advocated so far like raising the eligibility age from 65 to 67. hasn't said a word about that in the election campaign so far. you can expect the two to clash on that issue, as well. >> john, i know you've looked at some poll numbers from the journal and nbc news. maybe a slight tightening on a national level. but certainly in some important states like ohio, the president continues to lead. i know you've said the romney strategists believe they need ohio. if it's mathematically possible to win without it, why do they still believe they need it? >> well, because if you don't win ohio, you're probably not going to win, say, wisconsin, which is another

completely partisan rhetoric, calling paul ryan to beat up on him in public, accusing doctors of wanting to grab people and cut their tonsils out, and if you liked your health insurance, you could keep it, and if you like your doctor, you can keep them, that's been broken. calling on republicans to have dirty air and dirty water. that's not consistent with our values. all we have to do is remind people we don't want four more years of chicago style politics, and what happens if he's relegislated and he's not even restrained by the prospect of the re-election campaign? if that happens, the hhs regulation, recess appointments when the senate is not in, executive order, setting aside law and creates a new work permit without the dream act kids. whether or not you're for or against it, he act contrary to law. he's acted in a wreckless way. i don't know what the next four years would be. we have to remind people about that. i'm an optimist. i think we're going to win, win the senate as well, whether it's connie mack in florida or george allen in virginia or josh mandell in ohio where senate s

class and cut taxes for wealthy americans. a fox business exclusive republican candidate paul ryan says wealthy americans like mitt romney will pay more. >> here's how it works. higher income people can use lots of tax shelters to shelter their income from taxation. close those tax shelters and more income is subject to taxation which allow us to lower tax rates for everybody. rich: some families and businesses will pay more because there will be fewer deductions. others will pay less with lower rates and in theory it balances out. for who is paying more or less we don't have those details from the romney campaign. they refuse to say how much the deductions they have to curb or even many to accomplish their goal. a senate source tells us the supercommittee discussed a rate cut and preliminary assumption show the cost of $1 trillion over ten years. congress has not officially run those numbers. as for what congress may consider eliminating the most popular individual deductions are exemptions for the cost of workers' health plans. interest on home mortgages, retirement plans and state an

[ talking over each other ] >> we will get to that. >> let me just tell you. it would take me too long to go through all the math. dagen: it would take too long to go through all the math. what does david stockman think of this? he is author of the triumph of politics. great to see you, as always. is that a mistake or the right way to go? >> it is pathetic. this is nixon's secret plan for years later. if they think they can cut tax rates and close these loopholes and expenditures, they have to name them. you have to be honest with the american people. they are being totally dishonest. somehow, they think that people will buy it. dagen: dishonest is a big word. mitt romney has alluded towards meeting to let congress -- this will be a comprehensive tax reform. >> if you do not tell the american people it darkly where you will get all of this revenue so you can get a tax break to everybody, and you are not preparing the way, not gettin
of the divide what paul ryan in some respects was supposed to represent. do you think that romney has tacked too far to the middle? in the past week or two he's talked about taxes and suggested that actually on upper and middle-class earners that their taxes aren't going to go down, for example? >> well, i think it needs to be even simpler than that as far as the message, and i don't know about tacking this way or that way. i think genuineness helps you in elections. but what i would say is the main difference between the candidates from my perspective is that president obama thinks that you can hire more government workers and that will stimulate the economy. i see government workers not as bad people, but they're in the wagon. you got to have more people pulling the wagon. i think governor romney understands that. you got to grow the private sector. >> senator paul, thank you for being on today. appreciate it a lot. >>> okay. we got a lot more coming up. at 8:30 eastern we'll get personal spending data for august and talking about the effect of this summer's drought.

and what we can expect to see tonight is. she is trying to tie heller to paul ryan's budget plan. democrats love to say that once in congress and once in the senate he was actually appointed to the senate last year when he resigned. he voted for it twice and should probably come up tonight. for her to say something along the lines of dean heller wants to end medicare as we know and turn it into a voucher program, and basically try to tie him to that. you've also seen him running a little bit from mitt romney and with his comments last week about the 47% we saw him distance himself from that saying that is and how he viewed the world. so we may see that, as well. she will also likely bring up the dream act that's a pretty good deal in nevada and is obviously a state with a high latino population. shelley berkley supports the dream act and dean heller doesn't. she's tried to cut an issue and he's tried to reach out to latino voters in the ads and other ways of outreach. >> when it comes to looking at the polling or what is suggested as far as this is concerned, what is the story in nevada? >>
is democrat and who was republican. you had mayor rahm emanuel, mitt romney and paul ryan were congratulating him. sometimes the democrats and republicans in washington are often more unified than is portrayed. the majority of this people are often the silent majority. you just don't hear them in means -- in mainstream media. host: recall from virginia on our line for independents. caller: good morning. guest: hi. caller: i am harold johnson from richmond, virginia. host: go ahead with your question or comment. caller: ms. goodman, thank you so much what to do for this country. let me ask you a quick question -- when you become a congressman or house of representatives, you take an oath of office to serve this country. yet, you take another oath from grover norquist saying that you will never raise taxes. i thought we are represented by one constitution and not two constitutions. how can he get away with if you not voted republican in not raising taxes, how does he get away with that? guest: people don't have power but others be so that with power. i think there is a force more power than an

as they should in any election. governor romney chose paul ryan and his running mate. he is relatively young by you look at what he stands for. he wants to change medicare as we know it. he uses all kind of and tries to come across like the boy next door. you have to look at the question of why governors -- governor romney is invested so heavily. guest: thanks for the call. in our research, young people are very concerned at issues and looking for information on issues. in 2008, young people said their position on issues was more important than character responsibility are looking for someone who can understand the issues and the variances they have the also, our research has shown that they are caught and sent a worthy of liberation. we hear the young people are looking to places they trust for information. young people are very careful to know about things. -- they areg to get looking to get information from the people in their lives. there are members of the family who they respect. young people are very cognizant of where they get their information and very critical. >> you have talked a
